To get the latest in upscale features and choose their own customizations, many active adults have their hearts set on buying a new construction. This can be a bit of a challenge in popular Florida locations where established communities only offer resale homes. Fortunately, construction has not ended in the Sunshine State, and new active adult communities still offer a variety of new home options.
